Tours, day trips, activities & things to do in Gibraltar
A tiny piece of British land nestled in the warm embrace of glorious Spain, Gibraltar is an extraordinary destination with a unique character. Washed by the bright Mediterranean sun but British at heart, the Rock, as Gibraltar is colloquially called, stands majestically at the point where Europe and Africa meet. No matter its small size, Gibraltar has many wonders at stock for those who choose to explore its charms.
Although encircled by the emerald waters of the Mediterranean Sea and situated near the whitewashed villages of Southern Spain, Gibraltar is essentially British. With old-fashioned hotels, pubs and tea rooms, the Rock has an inescapably nostalgic aura. Yet it’s hard to miss the importance of its strategic position as well. Gibraltar has always been an important military base and, nowadays, you can learn its history by visiting various points of interest, such as Europa Point, the Siege Tunnels and many more. Last but not least, Gibraltar is one of few places in the world where you can get a glimpse of the Barbary Macaque, an endangered ape species that lives free on the Rock.
